2024 Merit Scholarship -
Now Accepting Applications
Bridge4Students Merit Scholarship will help qualified Ukrainian students, who are experiencing financial hardships due to war, to cover all or a portion of school tuition expenses for Spring or Summer of 2024. The grant amounts will vary from $200 to $10,000 depending on:
- demonstrated need - the amount needed to enable the student to attend the educational program
- merit - academic achievement and potential to make an impact on the world
2024 Merit Scholarship will give priority to qualified refugees - students who have just arrived in US after February 2022, are just starting their programs in US educational institutions, and have received or have applied for other financial assistance but still require funds to study in Spring or Summer of 2024.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
